Patient Safety Boot Camp Now Available for EMS

There’s lots of talk in the EMS world about patient safety and patient culture, but few resources to assist agencies in improving their culture and moving forward.

The Center for Patient Safety (CPS) has taken action. Based on similar work done in the acute setting several years ago, we have developed a day-long Patient Safety Bootcamp for EMS professionals.

Attendees will learn the basics of the science of patient safety, human factors, error reduction, process improvement and measurement. Presentations are in TED talk style, with “work-out” discussion sessions after each topic for attendees to analyze how their agency is fairing relative to the presented topic. Tools such as fishbone, root cause analysis, prioritization matrices and action plans are used throughout the day.

The goal is for each participant to leave the boot camp with either the start or refinement of a patient safety plan. Presenters are safety specialists with many years of experience in patient safety and quality improvement.

I encourage EMS personnel to consider this unique opportunity to dive in to patient safety!
